Modifying your hiring process to solve a problem
Most Spark Hire customers come to Spark Hire to solve 1-3 problems they're currently facing in the hiring process. Determining the problem that's most prevalent for you is helpful in following a playbook that'll align your hiring process with the best possible outcome.
Under-resourced HR teams, relative to their workload (volume,) can only do so much. They have many other responsibilities, hiring is just one of them.
